Year 2014 witnessed consolidation in the Indian e-commerce market with clear leaders breaking out of the pack in some verticals like kids’ products, furniture, etc while a troika emerged in the horizontal e-tailing space. Both investors and strategic investors latched on to their horses having bet over a billion dollar or more each in the top three e-tailers alone.
Be it one of the single biggest private funding round in an e-com firm globally or Alibaba’s biggest shareholder SoftBank drawing a big investment commitment for India and the single biggest M&A to date, Indian e-com saw it all. And action is getting hotter with Amazon in talks to buy Jabong in possibly its biggest deal ever, comparable to its acquisition of Zappos five years ago.
The activity is not limited to e-tailers but covers their enablers. So firms engaged in logistics, Big Data analytics, couponing, etc, also saw their business getting an automatic booster shot both in terms of traction and investor interest.
In light of the industry entering a new phase and truly disrupting retailing on a broader play, Techcircle is organising the 7th edition of Techcircle E-commerce Forum on 26th February at Vivanta By Taj, Cuff Parade in Mumbai.
It would discuss the ground reality of what’s driving such investments, fundamentals behind the business, investor’s bullish attitude and future of the ecommerce industry in the medium to long term.
